My name is Bean and this is my blog. Hence the name. If you have comments or questions, just leave them in the comments area.
Stands for Lost Season 5 Premier Party, and it's happening at my house on January 21st. As you may or may not know, mothereffer and I took off work for the season 4 finale back in May in order to spend the day rewatching old episodes, discussing themes and theories of the show, and preparing for the primetime broadcast. It was a great time, so we are doing it again for the season 5 premier, and I think we'll have an additional attendee this time: coworker mike!
My prediction is that it will be a "3 hour event" again, with the season 4 finale first, a 1-hour recap "setup" episode, and the actual premier. We haven't nailed down which episodes we're going to recap before hand, but we've got room for 8 or 9 of them. Any suggestions?
To mix things up a bit, we'll be taking ping-pong breaks between episodes. To mix things up further, we'll apply Lost-themed rule variations:

Michale pong made me ell oh ell heartily, as did Hurley pong. We've been talking about just rewatching season 4, but have not yet gotten around to it.
What about Desmond pong: You can go back and replay a previous point at any time, but the outcome can't be any different. Also talk in a terrible Scottish accent the whole time, and take a shot of Whiskey after each point.

Damn, Desmond pong has us all beat. Funny stuff.

Jin Pong - You have to hold your paddle like those crazy asian pongers do.
Finch (January 15, 2009 at 11:32:34 AM):
Sawyer Pong - Play while wearing two different prescription eyeglasses taped together.
Brad (January 15, 2009 at 01:46:02 PM):
Walt Pong - You have to play on your knees to look shorter.
Libby pong - You have to have sex with someone over 500lbs...umm before playing pong.

Hmmm... running out of characters.
Ben Pong [variation 2] - If you lose a point, you get to attack the opponent like a spider monkey and stab him repeatedly in the neck.

Sayid Pong: Loser gets waterboarded.
bigD (January 16, 2009 at 09:47:31 AM):
Lost Pong - Instead of playing pong you set up lots of message boards and blogs about it, which nobody else cares about or reads.
Brad (January 16, 2009 at 11:34:19 AM):
Dont's Fret bidD. I think I have a "raising chickens" blog in the works. Everyone can relate to those.
